WVBU plays a music format of modern and alternative rock, with a number of specialty shows of such genres as classical, jazz, and classic rock. The station fills a niche in the airwaves that has been left open by local radio stations, and provides public service announcements and news to the campus and surrounding area. WVBU also operates a remote services division, providing music for on-campus entertainment. WVBU-FM is open to membership, after a mandatory training period, to all members of the Bucknell community, students and faculty alike.
